How do I convert files to newer version?

By agservices ·
I have a computer with Win95 and MS Works 2.0, when I try to save files to a diskette and then try to open them on a newer computer with Win98 and a newer version of MS Works, the diskette does not show that any files are saved to it. I have tried converting the works files to word and then save them but have same results. How can I get these files transfered to the newer computer?

Converting files.

What is the new version of MS Works? You should be able to open MS Works and select "Open" and then on the new screen that appears go to the bottom, and select the down arrown by "type" and search for the old file type. Several should be listed. Ionly have Works at home and am at work so I cannot test this for you here. If you are making a big leap (version 2 to version 6) you might not be able to do this or you might have to tell ver 6 to open a version 3 or 4 file and see if that works.
